Wow, so many distant cousins posting here.
Our family has lived in the Houston area continuously since the Republic, and any stories I ever heard were centered primarily on the Texas accomplishments, which were many. There were indeed many irregulars working with the swamp fox and Alexander Hodge was quite young when he joined the fight so it is quite possible he was not on any roles. Also, according to histories he was always pushing west ... I wouldn't put much store in pension data. He basically didn't live in the US anymore.
